    Falklands’ oil equipment arrives in vessel with giant computer-controlled kite

    German owned MS Beluga SkySails can display huge paraglider of 600 sq. metres

    One of the strangest ships ever to visit the Falkland Islands this week lay at anchor in Port William after making a hasty departure from FIPASS. Had it not left the dock, an ongoing legal wrangle involving its owners could have caused it to be detained there indefinitely – rendering a significant proportion of FIPASS unusable by other vessels, perhaps for a very long time.
